SHRIMP SALAD


This is my favourite salad as I love shrimps.. You can enjoy this cool salad in summer.
This can also be served in cocktail glasses...looks very decorative with the lettuce at the bottom, then a layer of carrot and shrimps on top. Decorate the rim with a shrimp.

Ingredients:
Shrimps .....   10 - 12
Lettuce ..... 1 cup  (chopped)
Carrot ...... 1/2 cup (grated)
Mayonnaise .... 1 tbsp
Salad cream .... 1 tbsp
Tomato ketchup .. 1 tbsp
Tabasco ............. 1 tsp
Salt
olive oil

Method:
1. Clean and de-vein the prawns. Boil them adding little salt for 1 minute. Do not over cook. Drain them and set aside to cool. Slice them into two (vertically), saving 2 for garnishing.
2. Mix the sauces together and add the prawns. Add salt if needed.
3. Cut the lettuce and sprinkle a little salt and a dash of olive oil and mix.
4. In a serving plate or bowl, spread the lettuce first, then grated carrot and spoon the shrimp salad on them.
Garnish with the remaining 2 shrimps and serve. (You can also add avocado and cherry tomatoes )
